Smith & Wesson is expanding its line of M&P M2.0 Compact pistols to include an optics-ready variant, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact 4-inch OR. Chambered in 9 mm, the pistol builds on the award-winning M&P9 M2.0 Compact pistol series, and features a slide cut for an optic that co-witnesses the white-dot front and rear sights, along with enlarged forward slide serrations.

Vince Perreault, Smith & Wesson’s Brand Marketing Manager, said, “The use of optics has become increasingly popular as handgun owners look for ways to enhance their accuracy and shooting experience. To meet the demands of our consumers, the M&P9 M2.0 Compact is now able to accept many popular slide-mounted optics, straight from the factory.” 

The M&P9 M2.0 Compact OR pistols are purpose-built for both personal and professional use, and include the M2.0 feature set. The handgun is available with or without an ambidextrous manual thumb safety and is chambered in 9 mm, with a 4-inch barrel. The M&P9 M2.0 Compact OR comes standard with seven mounting plates designed to fit popular slide-mounted optics, two 15-round magazines, four interchangeable palmswell grip inserts, and other items. 

Features

  • Optics ready slide
  • Seven mounting plates included
  • Ambidextrous thumb safety model available
  • Picatinny-style rail

  • Tactile and audible trigger reset

Review: Tisas PX-9 GEN3 Duty

It’s said that in life, one never gets a second chance to create a first impression. SDS Imports, the company that imports the Tisas firearms manufactured in Turkey, appears to have embraced that piece of wisdom, because I was extremely impressed from the moment I opened the box containing its new PX-9 GEN3 Duty 9 mm semi-automatic pistol. Except for some ammo, the box contained everything you need to defend yourself and your loved ones.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus In 30 Super Carry

Before we dive headfirst into the morass that is the 30 Super Carry debate, let’s start with something (slightly) less controversial: Smith & Wesson’s Shield Plus is a supremely good pistol. Building on the success of the standard Shield and updated M2.0 versions, the Shield Plus kept critical dimensions similar to allow most gear designed for the Shield to work for the Shield Plus.
